for that report. >>> the obama administration may be stepping up its push for some form of new gun control legislation. but will the president be able to rally the support of congress? most importantly, the american public at the same time? we'll dig deeper with our chief political analyst gloria borger. here's what the president recently said on "meet the press." i'll play the clip. >> we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. one of the things that you learn, having now been in this office for four years, is the old adage of public opinion. without public opinion there's not something you can't do and wut it there's very little you can't get done in this town. i'm going to be putting my full weight behind it. >> now, remind our viewers why so many democrats have been reluctant to even talk about gun control over these past several years. >> yeah. it's almost 20 years, wolf. it goes back to 1994. that was the big election which republicans took control of the congress.

the message chuck hagel has been sending for years on this. the obama administration has been pretty tough on iran behind the scenes. hagel has been consistent himself, saying look, we cannot allow a nuclear iran, war should not be our first choice, and that also is consistent with the president. the president began by thinking perhaps he could negotiate more with ahmadinejad than has proven to be the case. he's evolved on this issue. my guess is chuck hagel as secretary of defense will reflect that evolution. >> there's one other thing i want to ask you each about. this is relevant -- well, we'll ask you whether you think it's relevant in terms of timing. in terms of topic i think this is relevant. the number of sexual assaults in the military each year is about 19,000. it is a serious issue. there are women in the military now and in 1996, when running for senate, the literature from chuck hagel reportedly said quote, i am pro-life with one exception, the life of the mother. now, who knows, people agree and disagree with that. i'm simply curious about democrats are not noticing that, tal
